Edition Notes:

This work, a much enlarged revision of ‘The Lichen Flora of Great Britain and Ireland' published in 1992, reflects the enormous advances in lichen taxonomy over the last two decades and is the standard work for the identification of lichens in Great Britain and Ireland. There are keys to 327 genera and 1873 species, with detailed descriptions and information on chemistry and distributions. The language is accessible, avoiding obscure terminology, and the keys are elegant. This book is indispensable to all serious students of lichens and to other biologists working in the related fields of ecology, pollution, chemical and environmental studies. 

The Lichen Flora of Great Britain and Ireland published in 1992 was an outstanding achievement for British Lichenology.  It was a pioneering work and the first of its type in Europe.  This much enlarged revision reflects the considerable accumulation of new information that has occurred since its first publication and is symptomatic of the enormous advances in lichen taxonomy over the last two decades.  There are keys to 327 genera and 1873 species, which is an increase of 386 species since the first edition was published.  The publication provides detailed information on morphology, chemistry and distribution for each species written in language that is readily accessible, avoiding obscure terminology.  Both the glossary and introductory sections have been expanded and the latter includes helpful advice on the identification and examination of lichens.  The preparation of this new treatment has involved a large number of contributors both in the UK and overseas and represents the culmination of lichen studies at this time.
